پرشامک دیکھ بھال کیا ہے?

If you have been told you may not get better or you have a life limiting illness you may be offered palliative care. This means the health and social care professionals who are involved in your treatment and care will talk with you about ways to improve and maintain your and your family’s / carer’s quality of life. They will regularly assess how you feel so they can quickly try to relieve any pain you have. They will also try to help you with any other concerns you may have whether they be physical, emotional, social or spiritual. You can have palliative care for weeks, months or years.
